    Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 first impressions: A worthy iPad Pro rival?

    India’s tablet market isn’t going through the best of times. In fact, a recent report recorded over 20 percent year-on-year drop in tablet shipments in the first quarter of this year.

    Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Review: Fun with a dash of nostalgia

    Photo filters are quite the rage these days on social media, and more often than not, we use them to give our photos a retro effect. Riding this wave is Fujifilm with its range of Instax cameras that brings the old-school polaroid cameras into the hands of the millennials. Despite how old and simplistic the technology is, you can never get over the satisfaction and anticipation of a whitewashed paper turning into a photograph you clicked. With the Instax Mini 8, Fujifilm not only gave the old-school polaroid cameras a modern look and feel, but also made it affordable enough for most of us. Now, the Japanese company has updated the Instax Mini 8 without really making wholesale changes. The new camera is called Instax Mini 9, and it was launched in India last week priced at Rs 5,999. Having spent sometime with the new camera, here’s my review. More →
